FAQ About the El Escorial Day Trip
Where do we meet? Where does it end?
You'll meet in Madrid, at Moncloa Bus Station (your confirmation will have the exact meeting point). In total, this is a 4 hour excursion. Travel time to El Escorial is about 1 hour, then we'll spend 3 hours on site. Return time is not included in the excursion. You can stay in El Escorial on their own and eat lunch, or return to Madrid with the guide.
We purchase entrance tickets for El Escorial, however you will need to pay for your bus tickets during the tour. Your guide will be able to assist you, but you must have cash on hand—approximately €15, for the bus to and from El Escorial.
Depending on the timing of the second tour, it may be possible. Please contact us to see if this is feasible.
The Palace is not excessively friendly. It is “partially accessible” which means visitors with reduced mobility can see about a third of the palace. There are a lot of stairs throughout the venue. If you are restricted to a wheelchair, the most you will be able to see is the Basilica. Our typical tour involves bus service between El Escorial and Madrid. We recommend private car service for those with reduced mobility.
Yes we can. We can arrange a car to be at your disposal for the duration of the day. If you'd like to arrange a car service, just mention this in the notes section of your booking. We will follow up with you to establish your exact needs in order to provide a quote and then adjust your order accordingly after it's been submitted.
